Christmas in the Village attracts large crowd

More chairs had to be added, another table, and a few people stood

A large crowd of people – approximately 70 – attended Christmas in the Village at Vavenby Christian Church on Sunday morning, Dec. 20. More chairs had to be added, another table, and a few people stood. It confirmed to the congregation that a larger building is needed.

John and Valerie Gerber opened the program by singing “The Perfect Tree”. The fourth Advent candle was lit next after a Bible reading.

Then everyone became involved in the singing of the familiar Christmas carols. The video ” Snoopy’s Christmas” followed.

There were two more performances to watch. The Children’s Church, under the direction of Lisa Wilkinson, sang two songs – “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” with some words changed, and “Hush, Shhh, There’s a Baby” with actions added. Isaac Moilliet and Zion Toscano got up next to sing “All Things New.”

Pastor Ian Moilliet followed to deliver his message The Peace Treaty. Then everyone went to get their lunch from the large spread.


All performances were excellent and the potluck lunch delicious.
